Corrupt Domain Profile in Vista


G

Guest

My domain profile got corrupted on Vista, I'm getting the usual "loading
temporary profile" message when I try to log in. I've seen suggestions to
just create a new user and move everything over. But since I log into a
domain, I can't just create a new user without also creating a whole new
domain profile. I'd rather just reinstall Vista (or downgrade to XP) if this
is the only other option.

Is there any way to get Vista to just recreate profile settings for the same
user? I do this all the time for domain users in XP.

This was the link to create a new profile in Vista

Apparently this is stumping everybody. But not having an answer for this is
not acceptable, unless you're not planning on having networked PCs ever
again. There needs to be a way to fix a corrupted profile without just
giving you an entirely new name.

I tried System Restore, that doesn't work

Just log in as administrator and rename the bad profile.
Login as the user. This will create a new profile
Login as administrator and copy documents, desktop, etc from the bad to the
new profile
Login as user. You should be good to go.

I tried this a number of times. Vista still will not create a new user
profile, it remains stubborn on loading a temp profile until I put the old
one back.
